Welcome to the

Jamaican Diaspora en France


The Jamaican Diaspora en France (JaDiF) is a nonprofit organisation registered in France under the French 1901 Law. It was founded in 2019 by a group of Jamaican and French nationals residing in France, who desired to create opportunities to promote Jamaica and its culture. 


Although the ties between France and Jamaica have been traditionally strong, the founding members of the organisation identified a need to create a tighter, more enhanced alliance within the general population, with primary focus on culture, sports, education and entrepreneurism.


JaDiF is open to both Jamaicans and Friends of Jamaica. It is an apolitical organisation, but will work with Jamaican and French government and civil agencies, along with other institutions and individuals, both local and international, to achieve its objectives.

Since our founding we have been determined to make a positive impact. The core of our efforts is to bring fresh ideas and passion to the range of activities we are involved in. Through all of our endeavours we hope to display the conviction behind our beliefs. Check here for information on why JaDiF, and what makes us different.
